4th Street Bridge

Pueblo, Colorado

Owner: Colorado Department of Transportation

Design / Construction Engineering and Inspection: FIGG

The 4th Street Bridge crosses a small city street, the vast Pueblo Railroad Yard, and the Arkansas River. The 1,137’ long twin, cast-in-place concrete segmental bridges were built from above, allowing for uninterrupted railyard operations below. The bridge features five spans, the longest of which is 378’, a record for the longest highway bridge span in the state. A major theme of “Natural Environment” and minor themes of “Contemporary Sculpture” and “Pueblo Heritage” were chosen by charette participants to guide the development of aesthetic bridge features.



Including the 2011 PRIDE Award from the American Road & Transportation Builders Association
